One of the guys I work with has a friend that went to Istanbul Turkey to teach English as a second language. He asked if I could make a simple little box to put some shells, beach sand, that sort of thing in it to send to her. This is what I made for him. It’s a Birdseye maple box with a lift off lid that measures 6.75×4.5×4.75.

That’s a neat feature with the finial on top.

Great little box – the finial for some reason reminds me of Turkey (the country, not the bird).

Thanks, the finial was an after thought. Sandy is happy with it, and has sent it off.
